I am so happy for you. I can't wait to join you. Which surgery did you have? RNY (distal or what?) You look great now. Just wait until you lose what you want. Those horses will think they have a fly on their backs. Tee Hee!! Just kidding. Great work!!! Let me know what the doctor says.

Norma - Thanks for your support and encouragement. I am doing so great after surgery I can't believe it's real. I have not had any pain at all. I am excited about seeing my Dr. tomorrow for my first week check up. I have lost about 15 pounds. I am still afraid to get on the scale for fear it will come back. Will I ever not be afraid to weigh?

I keep you in my thoughts and prayers. How are you doing? Did you have the RNY surgery? I read your updates and it sounds like you are doing great. Keep up the good work!!

Hi everyone. I just got home from the hospital and wanted to let you all know that I am okay. My surgery was uneventful and I am now on the losing side!! Having a really hard time swallowing even the tiniest amount of juice or water etc. Feels stuck. Surgeon said that is normal for a few days until the swelling subsides. Just glad to be home. Thanks for all your encouragement and support.
